For me, it's probably A Tale of Two Cities (1989), closely followed by Bleak House '05 and Little Dorrit '08. But that's a hard one; most of them are each amazing, in their own way. :)

I should clarify--by "them", I mean Dickens adaptations in general. Whenever we talk about Dickens miniseries at our house, it's always a positive thing, because we like 90% of the ones we watch. ;)

I feel like I haven't seen nearly enough Dickens adaptations to be a good judge on this. But of the ones I have seen, I'd go with the '08 Little Dorrit, as well.

Probably Bleak House 2005. I like DC 1974 and 2000 but neither of them are really that faithful - I just like them for sentimental reasons (NN 2002 is like that, too). :)

I'm with you 100% on Little Dorrit.

The Our Mutual Friend with Paul McGann coming in a close second.

I love the most recent Bleak House, with Little Dorrit and the Paul McGann Mutual friend tied for second, probably.

I'm not sure which one I would pick, but I do love the 1984 version of A Christmas Carol. That one is just so awesome, I think.

P.S. I love the allusion to Lambchop's Play Along!
